Chocolate Chilli Truffles

    6 hours 20 minutes

    This is a slight variation on a simple truffle recipe with the addition of chilli. They are an acquired taste, so if you like them hot you had better warn those you are sharing them with.

    My husband loves anything chilli, so these went down a treat. I followed the advise in the last review and doubled the amount of chilli - to be honest, next time I'm going to add more again! I found it difficult to shape after setting, so I remelted it and poured into an old ice cube tray. Worked perfectly!  -  24 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
